MOTHER TERESA

Mother Teresa (1910–1997) was a Roman Catholic nun who devoted her life to serving the poor and destitute around the world. She spent many years in Calcutta, India where she founded the Missionaries of Charity, a religious congregation devoted to helping those in great need. In 1979, Mother Teresa was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and became a symbol of charitable, selfless work. In 2016, Mother Teresa was canonised by the Roman Catholic Church as Saint Teresa.

but how much love we put in the doing.

It is not how much we give,

but how much love we put in the giving.”

“Love cannot remain by itself – it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action, and that action is service .”

“The hunger for love is much more difficult to remove than the hunger for bread.”
